Kochi: The Special Investigation Team probing the Perumbavur murder case on Wednesday took the prime suspect Ameerul Islam to Kancheepuram in Tamil Nadu, where he was working undercover before falling into the police net, as part of evidence collection.

The 23-year-old had earlier told cops that the yellow shirt and lungi he wore on the day of the crime on April 28 were left behind in his room at Sivagadipakkam near Kancheepuram. Ameerul Islam has been arrested in connection with the rape and murder of law student Jisha.

However, sources said they failed to recover anything there though they took the statement of the lodge owner, manager of the company where he was employed on a temporary basis and co-workers.

“According to them, the accused reached Sivagadipakkam where he had Assamese friends by June first week and joined the electronics company by June 9. He was working there under another name,” they said. Meanwhile, with the custody of the prime accused set to end on Thursday, the cops are slated to submit an application to extend his police custody further by ten days.

Though the evidence collection at the crime spot and other places visited by the accused post the murder was almost over, the sleuths plan to take him to his native village. They believe he had left his clothes and also spoke about the “killing” to his friends there.
